Now that the SS14 collections are online, cast your eyes over our Top Tips for introducing this season’s trends into your wardrobes.
If the head-to-toe luxe bohemian look seems slightly daunting, dip your toe into the trend by investing in one or two key pieces that will transform your existing wardrobe. Gucci’s lilac fringed satchel
or a pair of knee-high gladiator sandals
perfectly evoke the desired aesthetic when paired with either flowing skirts or tailored shorts. Roberto Cavalli’s printed silk kaftan
and By Malene Birger’s ombre maxi skirt
would be ideal for giving your holiday wardrobe an instant uplift; simply pair with your existing accessories and basics to create the desired look. A geometrically printed silk scarf
gives distressed jeans and linen shirts an exotic spin whether it is stylishly wrapped around your hair or flung over your shoulders. Alternatively, DSquared’s monkey-head earrings
offer a subtle nod towards the trend.
If you wish to give traditional florals a contemporary spin, consider clashing your prints, opting for more abstract designs or adding a dark and brooding aesthetic to the typically feminine style. Moschino Cheap & Chic’s daisy print shift dress
is perfect for festival season and can either be given a grungy look when paired with western boots
or a more romantic spin if worn with sandals. Alternatively, soft silk scarves
and clutch bags
emblazoned with prints reminiscent of an English country garden will add a discreet nod to the trend for either your every-day or evening look. For a look that will turn heads and transcend seasons, opt for a delicately printed dress such as Paul Smith Black’s rose-print design.
Add a metallic shimmer to your new season wardrobe by opting for glistening fabrics that are guaranteed to get you noticed, such as T by Alexander Wang’s nonchalant glistening jumper.
Subtly step into the trend by purchasing a pair of versatile metallic sandals
or slip-on trainers
that can be dressed up or down. Alternatively, Gucci’s iridescent jumpsuit
creates a bold statement that is perfect for sultry summer nights. For a true investment piece that will transcend seasons, opt for Lanvin’s metallic paper tote bag.
